Growing up in Korea, I don’t recall eating french fries, tator tots or hash browns. However, I do recall eating this potato dish called Gamja Bokkeum very often. My grandmother used to make this for my brothers and I, and for some reason, it was always very delicious! And yes, we were able to taste and appreciate the real potatoe flavor without much cover ups! It also nice that this healthy dish can be enjoyed as a simple side dish or as a snack.
The ingredients are very simple staple items in your kitchen. Potatoes, garlic, oil, salt, pepper and sesame seeds. Easy to prep and cook in minutes.
I like my potatoes a little undercooked, giving them a little crunch texture as you bite. Don’t these look quite tasty and healthy! Try them for yourself! They really are! 15minutes!!
My kids go crazy when they see Gamja Bokkeum on the table. They seriously don’t last more than 10- 15min! You can eat these alone as snacks or as a side dish with rice.
